An ancient salty cake with potatoes, salami and ham that will make you happy



  • For the casserole and top



We know, we know… You may think that the name Gateau seems to be really far from Italian language. It seems French. Guess what? It is!

In fact, the name Gateau was born in France, between ‘700 and ‘800, and it was used for sweet or salty cakes, but after the royal union of the Augsburg and Bourbon families, Italy, where the two families shared a lot of their power, mixed their traditions together, and the Gateau was born.
In Naples, in fact, the archi duchess Maria Carolina of Augsburg and Ferdinando IV of Bourbon got married. At the wedding banquet, the gateau was prepared by the monzù (monsieurs in French – chefs) brang in Naples by the archi duchess. Neapolitan monzùs, took the original recipe and started to modify it. They swap the gruyere with the mozzarella cheese and then they added salami and ham. For this reason, gateau is still considered half Neapolitan and half French.

Due to this, the Gateau, that originally indicated a salty or sweet cake, became a traditional neapolitan plate. Today it’s made made with mashed potatoes, milk, salami, eggs, ham and mozzarella cheese.

Gateau, today, is very common in the South of Italy, and every Neapolitan family keeps the secret of their ancient recipe. Clearly, everyone claims his recipe is the original one.

The recipe became also very famous among the people, because it is made with poor ingredients: potatoes, salami, ham and mozzarella. These ingredients, in the ‘800 and ‘900 were very common among population.

Please note that this recipe is very simple, but the secret ingredient is patience, because you have to cut and preparare 5 different ingredients, clean and cut potatoes and only after this you can cook it in the oven. So, take your time and enjoy this plate. You can also decide to add more cold cuts to the recipe and other ingredients.
